Great Reviews for Everything Everywhere All at Once: “It’s the best American movie in years”

Everything Everywhere All at Once - the action / adventure comedy from Daniels (Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) scored some strong reviews from the critics.

Starring Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis, Everything Everywhere All at Once will be released in cinemas in the US on March 25th.

Here are some reviews:

Everything Everywhere does everything but buck your seats and spritz you with water, although I’m pretty sure the Daniels would be thrilled for the film to play in 4DX theaters that do just that. […] There are enough ideas in Everything Everywhere All at Once to fuel a dozen movies, or else a full-blown TV series, but the Daniels have shoehorned it all into a bombastic, emotionally draining 139 minutes”. (Peter Debruge, Variety).

Everything Everywhere All at Once is a complex film that encompasses a variety of subjects, but it does justice to each of them with a carefully written script, marvelous performances, and a healthy dose of bizarre humor to counter its bleak story. Michelle Yeoh in particular gives a powerhouse performance in a story that puts a fresh, welcome spin on the idea of the multiverse”. (Rafael Motamayor, IGN).

“It's impossible to describe. It's unlike anything you've ever seen. It's the best American movie in years, and certainly the best movie to hit theaters since the pandemic began”. (Jacob Hall, Slashfilm).

“Here is an orgiastic work of slaphappy genius that doesn’t operate like a narrative film so much as a particle accelerator — or maybe a cosmic washing machine — that two psychotic 12-year-olds designed in the hopes of reconciling the anxiety of what our lives could be with the beauty of what they are”. (David Ehrlich, IndieWire).

“Ultimately, though, Everything Everywhere is best appreciated for its grandiose ambitions, bombarding the viewer with its frenetic style while telling a poignant story about an older woman trying to make peace with her not-so-wonderful life”. (Tim Grierson, Screen Daily).

Prorom will release Everything Everywhere All at Once soon in cinemas and VOD.

Superwho? – Now in cinemas!

The team that entertained us with the comedies Babysitting, Alibi.com, All Gone South and Nicky Larson, is now back in cinemas with a new laugh out loud comedy: Superwho?

Struggling actor Cedric seems doomed to lead the life of a loser. He's broke and his girlfriend has dumped him. Even his own father, sister and best buddies have lost faith in his ability to do anything worthwhile. Then finally, he gets a lead role: the superhero “Badman“. A chance to pull himself out of an endless downward spiral and gain his father's respect. But fate strikes again!

Rushing off the set in full costume, Cedric has a car accident, loses his memory, and wakes up convinced he really is a superhero on mission! Confronted with real-life adventure and danger, his true nature is put to the test.

Does he have what it takes to tackle the forces of evil, defend the weakest among us and beat the bad guys? But you can't just decide to be a hero, let alone a superhero... especially someone like Cedric!

Directed by Philippe Lacheau, Superwho? stars Philippe Lacheau, Julien Arruti, Tarek Boudali, Élodie Fontan, Alice Dufour and Chantal Ladesou.

“In Superwho?, there’s an effect similar to the movie Kick-Ass, in the way Cedric’s character ends up becoming a hero in real life, by fulfilling his dream. I hope comic book fans will laugh as much as we do when they discover this young man who thinks he’s a superhero and see how we’ve brought his misadventures to life.” sais director and actor Philippe Lacheau.

Superwho? premieres in Romanian cinemas on February 25, distributed by Prorom and Ro Image.

DOG: Channing Tatum's Directorial Debut is Now in Cinemas!

DOG, the first film directed by Channing Tatum (alongside Reid Carolin) can be seen from today exclusively in cinemas.

In DOG, paired against their will, former U.S. Army Ranger, Jackson Briggs (Channing Tatum), and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois Army K9), race down the Pacific Coast to make it to their best friend’s funeral on time.

DOG is a love story between two former elite warriors. One of whom happens to have four furry legs. On the surface, it’s a road-comedy about a hard-charging former soldier and an even harder-charging Belgian Malinois who hate each other’s guts yet get stuck traversing the entire western seaboard in a mad dash to make it to their best friend’s funeral on time.

Beneath that, it’s a story about vulnerability and learning to move on after tragedy and loss. It’s a personal exploration of strength; how, when faced with great adversity, we often toughen-up when we really need to open-up.

DOG explores the theme that surrendering is the only thing harder than fighting. And the only thing worth surrendering for is love.” says the Directors Reid Carolin si Channing Tatum.

Directed by Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin, DOG stars Channing Tatum, Q'orianka Kilcher, Emmy Raver-Lampman and Kevin Nash.

Prorom will release DOG in Romania on February 18th and Hungary on February 24th.
